Spectators at a baseball game consider themselves lucky if they can catch a foul ball. The really lucky people catch a rare bat soaring into the seats.
Last week, one lady definitely was not lucky when she was hit in the head by a bat. The injured woman, Tonya Carpenter, was sitting in the first few rows at Boston's Fenway Park watching the game between the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics. A's player Brett Lawrie broke his bat during the second inning swinging to hit a ball. The bat shard flew into the stands, hitting Carpenter in the head. She was quickly rushed to the hospital with what was thought to be life-threatening injuries. Carpenter has been upgraded to fair condition but remains hospitalized.
Can Carpenter sue for her injury?
